For this week’s style file, my fashion spotlight shines on actress and singer Christina Milian!
Ok, ok. Ms. Milian hasn’t had the best career as a singer or an actor. But I can’t deny it, this chick is beautiful, and she has the body to pull off a variety of looks.
There are a few occasions where Christina tries and fails at following trends.
This candy striper inspired sweater dress looks totally tacky with the matchy, matchy accessories. And white spandex capris?? Boo!
Ditto for this get up. These crazy paisley-esque tights are in a word, repulsive.
But we all have our bad days, right? For the most part Ms. Milian pulls it together and holds it down for the young brown in Hollywood.
She typically rocks shiny, short, saucy dresses for the red carpet…
Then works with a mixture of classic trenches…
Body flattering shorts…
Cute, yet simple tops…
And age appropriate club dresses.
…for her day to night grind.
